AMN Healthcare, San Diego, said it acquired substantially all of the assets of a Dallas-based travel nurse and allied health staffing company, Platinum Select. The deal could total up to $50.3 million after a 2008 performance payment is factored, plus the $32.9 million initial purchase price, according to regulatory filings. AMN, a publicly traded healthcare staffing company, reported net income of $27.5 million on revenue of $878 million for the first nine months of 2007. Nurse and allied staffing made up roughly 70% of AMNs revenue for the period ended Sept. 30, 2007. Locum tenens accounted for another 25% of revenue for the nine-month period; permanent physician placement made up the rest. In May 2007, AMN acquired Rx Pro Health, Denver, a pharmacy staffing company, for $5.5 million. -- by Melanie Evans
